I have two kids heading back to college and two in high school. Last year my daughter and I gathered some ideas for healthy care package ideas – or at least healthi-er! (Back in my day, I got cookies and candy from my family members!)
I wrote a post about this last year and thought I’d update it. Please share your ideas in the comments and I will add them to this post.
  • Dried apricots
  • Graham crackers (regular, chocolate, cinnamon)
  • Healthy choice microwavable soups (chicken noodle, chicken with rice, Italian wedding soup.)
  • Starbucks Refreshers Beverage.
  • Nature Valley Sweet and Salty Peanut Breakfast Bars
  • Special K Cereal Bars
  • Jif-To-Go Peanut Butter Packets
  • Cereal: Special K, Post Great Grains, Kashi
  • Animal Crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Fig Newtons
  • Goldfish
  • Macaroni and Cheese Bowls
  • Rice – microwavable
  • Popcorn
  • Nuts
  • Raisins
  • Juice
Some other care-package ideas:
  • handmade soaps
  • disposable razors
  • plasticware
